Eagle Harbor House
Bainbridge Island, Washington

Site: Located near the head of Eagle Harbor, this site is on a sloping hillside across the street from the bay and next door to a wetlands. The building site was extremely limited as a result.

Program: Recycle a 19 year old waterfront home by transporting it from its waterfront location on Puget Sound to a water accessible upper bay site on Bainbridge by barge.

Solution: The new site required significant excavation to avoid exceeding equipment limitations for transporting the large home up the slope from the water. This created an opportunity for a 1400 sq.ft. daylight basement/office to be built under the existing home, increasing the total home size to almost 4800 sq.ft. More in Press >>

Experience: A project of Kriegh Architects.
